Scots College is a world-class independent Presbyterian day and boarding school located in Wellington, New Zealand. As an IB World School, Scots offers a vibrant learning environment, encouraging excellence in every facet of education. Students are encouraged to become global citizens - who are equipped for life as balanced, compassionate, motivated and socially aware young people.
The Scots motto of 'Virtutem Paret Doctrina', translates as 'Let Education build all-round character' and emphasises the College’s commitment to an holistic education and the development of well-rounded students of substance.
Transferable skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, character and citizenship all play a significant role in the College’s curriculum design at all levels. The Year 11 course concentrates on learning and further development of these key skills through a programme that focuses on quality learning and teaching.
Scots College strives to instil in each student a life-long commitment to learning and provide a nurturing environment in which each student can achieve their academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social potential, for the greater good and in service to others. By providing students with an array of opportunities inside and outside the classroom, students are encouraged to not only explore and recognise the diversity of their talents and abilities but to develop essential leadership skills.
